Illustrated with numerous examples, the book covers essential compounds and explains how they exert their influence through an understanding of biological processes. Pharmaceutical chemistry has become progressively more important in terms of both research and teaching, and this new book includes latest developments with examples carefully selected in order to emphasise the molecular basis of specific disease processes
∗ a comprehensive introduction to this evolving field
∗ numerous examples and problems focusing on fundamental concepts and ideas to enhance student understanding
∗ coverage of various strategies behind the development and production of a range of key clinically useful compounds
This book will be invaluable to all students of chemistry, pharmacy, medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry and pharmacology. It will also be of interest to researchers and professionals needing a concise, up–to–date account of this subject.
